A golden bell ornament that archaeologists believed belonged to a priest or important leader from the Second Temple Period was found in an ancient drainage channel in ruins next to the Western Wall on Thursday, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced.

The small bell, which has a loop for attaching to clothing or jewelry, was found underneath what is today known as Robinson's arch. The area underneath the arch was the central road of Jerusalem, which lead from the Shiloah Pools in the City of David to the Old City and the Temple Mount.

They believed that the bell fell off the official's clothing while he was walking along the road and rolled into the drainage channel, where it has sat for nearly 2,000 years.


Amazing it just fell off his garment and survived 2,000 years of war and construction.

Interesting find.

That website is barely readable. There is way too much on screen. They need to put all their apps and features somewhere else and use less obnoxious advertisement. If your ads are really annoying I highly doubt that people with click on them.
